Deep Beauty Seema Gill Podcast Interview


This week’s Podcast episode is so inspirational and full of amazing tips guys, so, so excited to share this one with you! I got the chance to sit down with Seema Gill, co-founder of Dala Decor an incredible furniture house providing beautiful unique pieces, Shop City of Angels a SoCal vibe clothing store in Toronto, and 5 year breast cancer survivor and amazing wife, mom and woman.


I first hear of Seema when my cousin Kelly’s husband Geet shared her blog, CMATalks on Facebook one day. She was so brave to open up and share her journey with breast cancer with the world and there was just something about the way she wrote, it was so compelling and just brought you right in.


Seema Gill and Family


It’s been 5 years since the cancer and you would think that that journey was tough enough, but she’s been hit with a lot more since. Through it all she has remained this incredible, shining beacon of positivity and strength. Anyone would’ve let what she’s been through beat them, but not Seema.


If you’re going through anything stressful and need help finding a way to develop a positive perspective, you’re definitely going to want to listen to this episode. Don’t forget to subscribe on iTunes 😉

Sunny Lenarduzzi Interview


If you haven’t heard of Sunny Lenarduzzi just yet, I’m confident you’ll be hearing a whole lot about her in the very near future. Sunny is a fellow Canadian girl and a total Social media maven. I first heard of her when my friend Jackie sent me a link to one of her videos dispensing invaluable social media tips. You guys know how much I love inspirational women and especially female entrepreneurs..Well it’s safe to say that I’ve been hooked ever since! That’s why I knew I had to interview her for my Inspirational Women series. Read on 🙂


Tell us a bit about yourself

I live in beautiful Vancouver, BC.


How did you first get into Social Media?

My background is in broadcasting and after reporting at the 2010 Winter Olympics, I decided I wanted to transition from tradition to digital media. I started an online magazine and fell in love with the online space and social media. Organically, I started attracted clients and I’ve been very fortunate to run my business for 6 years.


How did you know you wanted to make it your full time career?

My kindergarten teacher nicknamed me ‘social butterfly’ and I’ve always had an affinity for creating conversation with anyone, anywhere. That curiosity and love for communication, has made allowed me to do work that never feels like ‘work’. I love what I do, and that’s why I chose to spend my time doing it.


Sunny Lenarduzzi Social media tips


What are your 3 biggest Social media tips for people who want to be successful online?

I call it my A.C.E. strategy – build AUTHORITY in your space, be CONSISTENT in your tone, aesthetic and content schedule,  and ENGAGE with your community.


What is you absolute favourite Social Media platform to use?

YouTube is hands down my favourite platform. I love creating video content and I love the community on that platform.


Now because this is a beauty/lifestyle blog, we want to know- What are your 3 can’t leave home without beauty products?

Carmex lip chap, sephora sable powder compact, and Lancome Grandiose mascara.

You have done an amazing job creating a career out of your dreams, congratulations on all your success! Do you have any advice for other girls when it comes to living their dream?

Thank you! Follow your feelings. I can’t stress this enough. Trust yourself, trust your vision and trust yourself to make the right decisions for you. I have trusted my gut in my biggest career choices and it always pays off, even if it’s not obvious at first.


Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I remember saying to my parents when I was in high school “I want to build a media empire”. And that crazy dream is what I see myself executing over the next 5 years – I’ll be creating valuable multimedia content across platforms, I’ll have written at least 1 New York Times Best Selling Book, and I’ll have a small but mighty crew that is consistently growing the business.


Thanks for sharing your life and tips with us Sunny! Check out Sunny’s incredibly informative Youtube videos here and follow her on Twitter here.

Get to know Sophie Simmons


I was fortunate enough to meet and interview rock heiress Sophie Simmons at a recent event in LA. Sophie is the daughter of Gene Simmons and co-star of 2 reality shows- Gene Simmons Family Jewels that followed the lives of Gene Simmons and his family and featured a teenaged Sophie (which I totally used to watch) and Shannon & Sophie, which focuses on the relationship between Sophie and her mom Shannon Tweed.

At the young age of 22 Sophie Simmons has already turned herself into quite a trail blazer. She has been very vocal about the portrayal of unrealistic body images in the media. At a size 8/10 Sophie is proud of her body & flaws and refuses to conform. I’m not gonna lie, that’s something that I myself have struggled with my whole entire life so it’s really amazing to see women like Sophie embracing their curves and encouraging other women to follow suit.

She recently launched her own clothing line that caters to those inbetween sizes (between the “regular” sizes and plus sizes) that most of us are lost in. That’s why I knew I wanted to feature her as part of my inspirational women series.

Meet Indian YouTube Beauty guru Kaushal Beauty!

Indian Youtube beauty guru Kaushal Beauty


Ok so you guys have no idea how excited I am about this Inidan Youtube beauty guru Kaushal Beauty!! She definitely has raised the bar when it comes to youtube videos (my videos are definitely inspired by hers) but I think it’s her positivity that I love the most. Not only is she super pretty (aren’t all Gujarati girls??) she is a genuinely nice person and it definitely comes across in her videos, her posts and even Kaushal beauty’s boyfriend’s posts (which I LOVE to read btw).


Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am Indian, Gujarati to be precise. I grew up in England and did move to the USA briefly but have been back in the UK ever since 🙂


How did you end up creating a YouTube beauty channel and how did it grow to over 200,000 subscribers?

I have blogged for years in my spare time and after about 3 years of blogging I decided to start making some videos here and there (which are sadly deleted because they were really bad, and I was clearly very nervous in them!) LOL. I’m not too sure how I’ve got over 200,000 subscribers now?! I feel like I closed my eyes and opened them to that! It’s been a crazy few months, I’ve gotta say!


Kaushal beauty


What are your 3 can’t leave home without beauty products?

Hmmm, three beauty products I can’t leave the house without… That would have to be SPF, Mascara and blusher! Okay and some tinted lip balm! And maybe some concealer… I think this goes to show how much of a beauty junkie I really am!


You do a lot of tutorials on Bollywood looks. Who is your fav bollywood actress & why?

My all time favourite has to be Madhuri Dixit. She is beautiful, elegant and not to mention an amazing dancer! I used to dance to all her songs growing up. Now-a-days, it will have to be Deepika Padukone – she’s such a babe!


Kaushal beauty quotes


You have done an amazing job creating a career out of your dreams, congratulations on all your success! Do you have any advice for other girls when it comes to living their dreams?

It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do. The best advice I could give to anyone is, work 10x harder on your dreams than you are now. All the hard work you put in, will help in the outcome. One last thing I would say is always stay positive about your dreams too. Try not to create too many doubts that stand in the way of them 🙂



All about Kaushal Beauty


Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I don’t even know what I’ll be doing in 5 days time, let alone years hehe! But I would like to be married, living somewhere sunny with a life filled with lots of love and happiness 🙂
